This is a difficult movie to watch, especially the ending. You basically watch a woman as she is stoned to death.

"Deja Vu" is a high-action, crime-drama, sci-fi, thriller which is exactly what you would expect from Jerry Bruckheimer, producer of such action-adventures as "Con Air," "Enemy of the State," "National Treasure," "Pirates of the Caribbean," and another Denzel Washington favorite, "Remember the [...]

Angel Eyes

"J-Lo" proves she’s more than just a pretty face or voice, in this romance/drama that explores unusual and heavy themes. Lopez handles the drama well but the script goes in too many directions to let her really run with the character. She and Caviezel have great chemistry together despite the [...]
